My grandfather Dino was used to say : “the simplest it is the best it tastes ” if the ingredients are top quality , I should add nowadays…
This is the same for the real Tuscan bruschetta: no chopped tomato! just a toasted slice of Tuscan unsalted bread , extra virgin olive oil , a bit of garlic, a pinch of salt and..that’s all!
When the oil is just pressed as today , it is an unforgettable taste, so pure,so simple , so precious and at the same time so filled with many different tastes when meets your mouth ….
I prefer a bruschetta like this than a steak, it is like a warm hug for your soul because it is part of our history this scented green gold coming from our hills since centuries.
Enjoy the colour & tell me : ever seen such a stunning colour before???
Next October or November plan a visit in Pistoia & I will show you a mill where to see how to press it & try it !
